Random Fridays: Dramatic sky over Suva

It looks as if the end of the world is nigh!

What a sky! I love those shafts of light through the glowering clouds, and the moody, menacing atmosphere. I took this from the Holiday Inn in Suva, the capital of Fiji.

Defunct fountains: Fiji

Defunct fountain in Thurston Gardens, Suva Fiji

Only the legs are left!

In Suva (the capital of Fiji), there is a lovely garden named in honour of Sir John Bates Thurston, governor between February 1888 and March 1897. While the lawns, trees and plants are well looked after, the monuments and fountains have had a tougher time. This fountain must have been very impressive when it was new and the basin was full of water. I can imagine children running through the water on a hot day, splashing each other and laughing with glee.
